RICHMOND, Va. — Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe took lunch with Gov. Bob McDonnell at the Executive Mansion, as the Democrat continues to reach out to Republicans.

The two emerged from the lunch Thursday and shared the thrust of their meeting with reporters. Republican McDonnell stressed the importance of working on a bipartisan basis, and McAuliffe agreed with his predecessor.
